Dec 10, 2012 NBA Injury Report
Nicolas Batum (POR) – Doubtful for Monday with a back injury.
Wesley Matthews (POR) – Gametime Decision with thumb and leg injuries.
Steve Nash (LAL) – It doesn’t appear that Nash is anywhere close to returning. He won’t be on the upcoming Laker roadtrip.
James Harden (HOU) – Harden is dealing with ankle and toe injuries, but should be probable for tonight.
Goran Dragic (PHO) – Dragic was a surprise scratch last night with the flu, which really killed me in my Fanduel and DraftStreet daily cash games. Several news sites reported around 7:00 pm EST that Dragic was going to play, but Sebastian Telfair got the start and Dragic never got on the court.
Pau Gasol (LAL) – Gasol has missed several games dealing with knee tendonitis, but could return Tuesday.
Brandon Jennings (MIL) – Suffered a minor ankle injury. Not sure if it was a new injury or an aggravation of his recent ankle problem.
Jason Kidd (NYK) – Suffered a minor head injury, but should be good to go for his next game.
Carmelo Anthony (NYK) – Returned after missing a couple of games with a finger laceration. He should be back in all lineups.
Amare Stoudemire (NYK) – Stoudemire is getting closer to a return. He got in a lengthy workout yesterday and could be just a couple of weeks away from getting on the court. You may want to toss a few trade offers out there and gamble a little on Stoudemire if you are falling deep in your leagues standings.
Rasheed Wallace (NYK) – Missed Sunday with a left foot injury.
Anthony Davis (NOR) – Davis could return this week, but I’d leave him on the bench for a few games to give him a chance to get the rust off.
Ekpe Udoh (MIL) – Wrist injury Sunday, X-Rays were negative. No word on how much time he might miss.
Derrick Favors (UTA) – Favors missed Sunday with plantar fasciitis.
Kyle Korver (ATL) – Doubtful Monday with back soreness.
Al Jefferson (UTA) – Jefferson returned to action after missing some time with a back injury. Give him a quick check before his next couple of starts just to be safe.
Brook Lopez (BKN) – Lopez will have his foot evaluated today and there should be a more definite timetable for his return given later this afternoon.
Mickael Pietrus (TOR) – Missed Sunday with a sore knee. Linas Kleiza got the surprise start.
Mike Dunleavy (MIL) – Missed Sunday with a knee injury.
Kirk Hinrich (CHI) – Day to Day with an elbow injury.
